What is Orthodontics? | NSW Specialist Orthodontist | The Ortho Practice

What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on moving the teeth and jaw into proper alignment.The medical term for improper tooth or jaw alignment is a ‘malocclusion.’ A Specialist Orthodontist can diagnose, treat and in some cases even prevent malocclusions.

As well as straightening teeth with braces and Invisalign® clear aligners, orthodontics can also help correct:

  • Finger and thumb sucking
  • Bite function
  • Jaw irregularities
  • Breathing problems
  • Speech difficulties

At The Ortho Practice we try to work with the natural growth of our younger patients to maximise the benefits of their treatment. Don’t worry, it’s never too late to get started on your journey to a straighter smile. With a combined 30 years of clinical experience and observation and a commitment to continued education, our Central Coast orthodontists can successfully treat patients of all ages.
